Excuse the hairy finger, but I felt it was worth it.

Sshh, Freke''s still sleeping.

Ellen, your aqua really is an all-time favorite, it''s so elegant and classy.

Thanks for the AM eye candy!
Thanks Merco! I was still sleeping, and then I got lost in the land of wedding shoes.

I really need to do something about my sleep schedule...going to bed at 4am is NOT a good idea!!!

...I can''t decide on a favorite picture. It just doesn''t take any bad pictures at all. How often do you wear it anyway?

Miss E,
That''s a very classy setting for your aqua. This isn''t the recut aqua, is it? Or am I just confused? It''s very pretty and you take excellent pictures.

Well you are!

Thanks you, I can''t tell you how much I love it either.

Hmmm, I wear it maybe once a week on average. I tend to "baby" it a bit, because I don''t want anything to happen to it, as it''s irreplacable. Although, when I think back to what this stone has been through since I got it 34 years ago, I probably couldn''t hurt it near as much as I think I could!

I wish I could get a good picture of it under my bathroom/bedroom lighting where it just lights up like a flashlight. But those always have such a yellow tint to them.

Anywho, I''m glad you liked them, it was fun!



LS, lol! I never thought of that (you are so clever), thanks for the tip!

Chrono, yes mam, this is my recut. It''s the only colored stone I have.


Thank you to all of you for the very, very nice compliments! I can truly feel the love.

Awww, thank you!!!

I wouldn't want anything to happen to it either. It certainly has been through a lot, just since I've known about it. And it so...perfect. But I think you're right! I don't think you could hurt it that badly!

I have to admit I want to see it under the bathroom lights! Yellow tint or not! So if you get bored...

Ellen,

Would your little doll be Meissen?
You know, I never really knew much about the doll, never looked up the name on it. But you got me curious, so I looked it up, and it''s Volkstedt porcelain. (ballerina)

I''m having a bit of a brain f**t! I mean''t Dresden, not Meissen. My Grandmother had a couple ballerina dolls and yours reminded me of it. The site you linked mentions Dresden, I will have to research and see if they are connected. Nice piece.

Ya know it''s funny. I had always "thought" of that as a dresden doll, yet I wanted to be sure after you asked. So when I looked up the insignia, I saw Dresden mentioned as you did, but this piece seems to be its own particular porcelain? I''m not well versed on all this so I don''t know... Let me know what you find out! And thank you, this was one of two from my grandmother that gave me the Aqua. My mom has the other one, hopefully I will get it when she''s gone so they are together again.



idream, thank you!

Gailey, sure. My bats are charging, so it will be later today. I have been wanting to start a thread on favorite pieces people have anyway, so may as well start it with the doll. I''ll put it in Family & Home.


Thank you Marcy!!

Ellen, I could look at pictures of your ring endlessly . . . I just love everything about it, starting with the sentiment, down to the last molecule of platinum.

Yep! My grandmother died when I was 15 and left me a ring she wore all the time that I had admired very much. I wore it a bit the first few years, and to parties and places where I really shouldn''t have. It also went through several moves. Then it sat for years in my jewelery box, being lonely. Here is what finally happened to it.
